Lewis & Clark teaches habits of mind essential to engineering, like how to think critically about complex issues and how to identify, define, and solve problems.
We have joined several nationally recognized engineering schools to offer a cooperative program that provides students with the advantages of a liberal arts education as a complement to rigorous studies in engineering.
I recommend the dual degree program highly. Dual degree students at the engineering school were better thinkers and writers than those who went through the traditional engineering curriculum.
This engineering program, commonly referred to as the “3-2 Program,” enables a student to complete three years of study at Lewis & Clark, followed by two years at the engineering school. The student earns a degree from each school.
Lewis & Clark cooperates in this program with three institutions:
- Columbia University in New York
- Washington University in St. Louis
- University of Southern California in Los Angeles
